re-sharing


So I've been kind of distracted so I thought for my (late) post today I would just (re)share some of my good news. My first early reader--think along the lines of Frog and Toad, Amelia Bedelia, has been acquired!

A couple of years ago, I went through this phase where all of my ideas were homages to all the books I loved as a child. For example, Year of the Dog was an homage to the Betsy books. At that time I also had this idea, which is an homage to the Flicka, Dicka and Ricka books. However, now I am going to have to stop with the homages because people are going to think all I do is regurgitate all the books I read as a child.

I loved the Flicka, Ricka, Dicka books when I was little! Now I'm looking forward to Ling and Ting...

Oh, how cute is this?
Congratulations on actually getting another picture book out there! They're MUCH harder than novels in many ways, and this one looks really adorable.
